Melbourne - Cafes
Melbourne has heaps of cafés, so whether you fancy a long and relaxing brunch, a quick coffee or an afternoon drink—it is all here situated on the street corners or in the small alleyways.
Degraves Espresso Bar
This coffee bar with character serves a delicious morning fry-up and a great espresso. The decor is a blend between Paris and Melbourne and, in true Degraves Street style, it’s an alfresco café.
BearBrass provides a good reason to take in a coffee, drink or meal at a fantastic location in Southbank right on the Yarra River — you’ll have terrific views of the city.
The patrons at IL Fornaio are mixed conservative, unconventional, singles, chatterers – you name it, they are here. Il Fornaio has an industrial chic feeling, with concrete floors, high ceiling and big paintings on the walls.
You can’t walk by Grandma Funks and miss it. Puzzled together in orange, green and red colours in a retro 1960s interior it’s fun! It boasts 11 gourmet pizzas baked in a wood-fired oven plus pasta, focaccias and burgers. 23 wines listed and 26 cocktails.
As the name implies, coffee is a major focus at this café, either take-away or consumed at the tables while reading a newspaper. There is usually a generous range of food available including paninis, ciabattas, baguettes, sandwiches, wraps and pastries.
